I am a photographer living in Beirut, Lebanon, and Washington, D.C., USA.  I am a septuagenarian in my eighth decade of life.  Once upon a time, I was a commercial photographer.  I specialized in creating high quality, innovative images of a company’s executives, its employees, and facilities.  In addition, I focused on architecture and interior photography.  Now, I am just a photographer.

I like what Aaron Siskind said, “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.  What you have caught on film is captured forever…It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”  The people in my images never age as we get older.

For me, photography is about seeing the world, about being present in the world.  Really, it’s about being alive in the fullest sense of the word.
